Kyoro-Chan is a Japanese cartoon bird that serves as a mascot for a brand of Morinaga chocolate known as ChocoBall. He first appeared in 1967 in the anime television series "Uchuu-shonen Soran".
He had his own anime series which aired in Japan on TV Tokyo from 1999-2001. It is rumored that this series may have had an English dub that aired in the Philippines and also possibly in India.
The Anime News Network page for the anime lists Richie Campos as an actor for some characters in the dub. Looking at his page reveals that his non-anime roles are in Filipino programming, which would suggest that the English dub (if it really exists) was produced for the Phillippines and aired on some channel over there.
More possible evidence comes from an article from the Hinduistan Times website describing the summer 2010 program lineup for an Indian channel called Pogo, which shows programming in Hindi, Tamil, and English. The article lists "Kyoro Chan" as one of the new shows airing on the channel beginning May 31, 2010. It is possible that this was actually a Hindi or Tamil dub but there is no proof of this as no footage of the show from Pogo has surfaced nor can any info on the channel airing the program be found anywhere else.
